In the field of mobile phone macro photography, is Huawei stronger or Apple stronger?

On the recently released Huawei Mate50 RS, Huawei is equipped with a 4800W pixel periscope macro telephoto lens for the first time, which has attracted the curiosity of many users. It also made a lot of macro photos appear on major social networking sites. Source: Screenshot of Xiaohongshu So where is the power of telephoto macro? What's the difference between it and the ultra-wide-angle macro lens that most cameras on the market carry? The closest focusing distance of the wide-angle main camera lens on our mobile phone is generally around 8-12cm, and no matter how close it is, the focusing cannot be guaranteed. This allows many users to hold the phone very close to the surface of the object when taking some close-up shots, but cannot focus. Users who understand a little bit of the principle may try to adjust the focus distance away from the mobile phone, while the "white" users who have no understanding of the principle of the camera may simply give up close-up shooting. So on the early smartphones, there will be some "macro lenses" specially launched for macro photos. Most of these lenses have a pixel count of about 200w. Activate at close range to take macro photos. However, this kind of lens is obviously not suitable for the current smart phone structure. The image quality is not very good, but it takes up the lens position of a camera, which is really worth the loss. As a result, its work was gradually replaced by an ultra-wide-angle lens. Starting with the iPhone 11, many mobile phone manufacturers have replaced the second lens on the fuselage from a telephoto to an ultra-wide-angle, because the use of ultra-wide-angle is wider. The IQOO Neo 7 released yesterday is actually equipped with a 200W macro lens Source: The closest focusing distance of the ultra-wide-angle lens on vivo's official website can be about 2.5cm, which is closer to the subject, so the details of the photos taken will of course be more. Now, most mobile phone manufacturers have 5000W pixels for ultra-wide-angle lenses. After the macro is turned on, the algorithm will crop the ultra-wide-angle picture, so that the picture presents 1 times the main camera frame, so that it does not appear in the photo. Distortion produced by the ultra-wide-angle lens, resulting in a more practical picture than a 200W-pixel macro lens. At present, 90% of mobile phone macros on the market are realized through this principle. Image source: Apple's official website and the 4800W pixel telephoto macro on Huawei Mate50RS is different. It can make the mobile phone a relatively far distance from the subject, and achieve the effect of macro shooting through magnification, which is very in line with The imaging principle of the Fuji macro lens I am currently using (80mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR Macro) is also a lens that achieves macro shooting at the "telephoto" end. The use of telephoto macro lenses on mobile phones is not Huawei's first. Xiaomi is back with the Redmi K30
